Well, I’ve got my first qualifying exam scheduled. Very scary. Unfortunately, this means that I need to review a whole bunch of authors who I either haven’t read yet, or have read a long time ago and subsequently cleared from mind.
Names spring to mind: Barthes, Greenberg, Jameson, Kittler, Lyotard, Manovich, McLuhan, Mitchell, Ryan, Benjamin, and Latour. Gee whiz, better get cracking.
As a side note, for the phantoms reading, I am going to try to write more. This is motivated primarily by my need to get more comfortable with writing for the coming apocalypse. I mean qualifying exam.
